View Full Version : Too much protein?

I weigh 130, and I'm getting 250g protein a day. Is this too much for my bodyweight? Or is more protein good for you?

Souds fine to me. I'd rather err on the side of too much protein than not enough. I normally have around 2g per pound of bodyweight when I am not on a reduced calorie diet.

I agree, I'd rather eat too much than too little.. I also aim for about 2-3g per lb of BW

250 sounds great for your body weight!

You take 1.9231 times your bodyweight in proteins. That's excellent. Don't need to worry.

If protein intake worries you, make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day (this should be a given regardless). I'm talking drink all day such that you'll be going to the bathroom every half an hour.

but your weight is really low so I would make sure you are getting enough fibrous carbs as well. eat lots of brown rice. And make sure you are also getting calories from healthy fats.
